ON AIR: Roll The Bones – Shakey Graves
First cool hunting story of March. Are you ready to dive into spring?
Rebecca Wolsten is the designer and founder of Liam of York (LOY), a slow fashion clothing and accessories line from NY that celebrates ancient textile techniques through a modern point of view. A label that reminds you to enjoy life. The SS17 collection makes me think about the people I love. I love the chic, yet relaxed vibe of her creations. Enjoy!
